Yet More Craigslist Stupidity!

Only if I get a discount for screen burn-in LMAO.




Actually no burn in whatsoever. I'm suprised the bulb hasn't went yet either, because when I bought it the salesmen asked me how long It would be on every day, and I figured with my wife and kids home during the day and me after work, at least 8 hours. So he tells me the bulb will burn out in like a year, so I buy the extended warranty for two years, and the bulb was still going strong for the two years. When the expiration of the warranty was close, I started leaving that thing on 24/7 and the fuckin bulb never burnt out. Now I haven't used it much in the last year, since I got my new one for upstairs and also just picked up another one for the basement.

Alright maybe the Dog bone NES is worth it. But still, craigslist is supposed to be the bargain bin garage sale rock bottom flea market. Not like some kind of ebay clone. You avoid hassles and fees but you're gonna have to settle for less or it won't sell.

That's speaking from experience.


Ever since i picked up Top Loader from eBay for $40 some dollars, I couldn't pay $150 for that. Although it looks in gereat condition, it would have to come with the box or something, and I'd still have a hard time buying, because the games are nothing special as far as hard to find, but who knows there may be some collector out there who just might buy it.

YeOldMario- Keep an eye on it if you can, see if it sits on there for awhile.

Dude, Did your CL ads being featured here for overpricing or what? :) You keep comparing CL with Ebay and defending those overpriced items. $ 300 for a 36" tube TV is way too expensive.

I'm thinking of selling some stuffs to you since it seems that you pay high dollar. :lol: Do you want to buy my 36" Toshiba Tube TV for $ 200? It's $ 100 cheaper than the CL ads.


I just don't understand why people post ads that aren't even unreasonably priced. I don't see the benefit in doing so... they're just wasting everyones time. Take a look at the ad right above your post.

AND MINE ALL WORK LIKE I SAID I A 40YR OLD KID THAT WORKS HARD FOR MONEY SO I KEEP CARE OF WHAT I BUY. CALL 9855429 [317] CASH OR TRADE. P.S. I HAVE A XBOX 360 COOLER NEW IN BOX I DONT HAVE A 360 SO I SELL THE COOLER FOR CHEAP $15.


Now THAT'S funny! Everyone else posting slightly overpriced ads is just wasting everyones time. Do I want to buy that TV? No.. but let's say I did. I would contact you and try to work out a price that we both could agree on.

According to who, YOU? :roll: I've sold stuff at my listed price before on CL and I have allowed people to 'haggle me down'(to what I wanted in the first place). It's all a matter of listing the item at a semi unreasonable price, then letting them THINK they're getting a bargain by letting them try and 'make a deal'.

I haven't sold much through CL really(some Xbox games, a slim PStwo and extra controller(s) ), but what I have sold I have managed to get what I wanted for the items and break even at the least.

So really, it's all in how you sell on there. I mean, sure, I could put up an Atari 2600 for $300 and I'm sure i'd be listed in this thread in no time at all. But I'd as soon put it up for slightly over what I want for it and let the 'bargaining' begin.

If they still don't want to pay what I wanted for it, then Fuck 'em, since I've only sold stuff on there just for a couple bucks when items were just sitting here collecting dust. I'd rather sit on a houseful of old crap than give it away to some douchebag who probably only wants it to resell for their own profit.

Who said I overprice stuff? I had a new in box PS2 slim I got for retail(with credit from my old Xbox PRP), so I priced it a bit lower than retail and tossed in an additional controller.

The buyers who actually popped up, after the usual string of scammers, bitched about the price a bit but one person did eventually buy it from me right before Christmas.

Same thing with the Xbox games I was selling. I had them marked below retail and I would've just as easily pulled the ads and used them again myself, rather than give them away for flea market prices.

Matter of fact, right now I have an ad which I renew every so often with the GTA IV Special Edition up there for $45. Yes, I know the original version goes for UNDER $40 from Gamestop USED, but either someone will bite or I'll pull down the ad and sell them locally somewhere.

I just get a kick out of all of the people saying 'zomg they want retail for this stuff LULZ' when in fact many of them are probably doing like I've done and giving themselves 'haggle room' so the cheap bastards and reselling douchebags can feel good that they 'got their deal'.

Namecalling is really as much a scumbag tactic as 'overpricing' something, dontcha think? Just because they didn't say 'come steal this thing off me for $20 and resell all the games because I don't need the money', they're overpriced and scumbags?

I gotta delete this thread from my favorites, before I say what I'm REALLY thinking.

lowballers on craigslist don't really bother me to much....i just delete the email or make a counter offer, or I wait for someone who will pay in full for whatever the item is

and once they buy it, they can resell it, eat it, stick it up their ass, anything. All that matters is I unloaded some junk I didn't need and got money for it! :D

the trick is, to list it for higher then what you really want, and when someone hits the real price you want, sell it to them. Make them think they're lowballing you.

You're just making empty assumptions. Craigslist is whatever you want to make it... I too have sold items for higher prices than what I would have gotten on ebay.

Isn't that EXACTLY what I said? That's how I've managed to get around the lowballers and the hagglers. It helps to give yourself some 'breathe' room when pricing stuff.

Actually, I decided to stick around for laughs, since some of the incredulous responses/posts people make about the 'high prices' for some of these items are just too funny.

I saw this title:

Original Sega Genesis with 3 Rare Games - $50 (Camas)



So I thought, hey $50 is a good price for a Genesis bundle if the rare games are good ones. I wonder what the titles of the rare games are...

This is an Original Sega Genesis with all hook-ups and 2 controllers. 3 Rare Games all with Original Box and Instructions.
Games are: Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II and The Lion King.

$50.00 firm.

I don't see what's so stupid about this. Looks pretty straightforward and a normal post to me. The games may be sports and old, but asking $3 each, all 7 for $20 I don't think is unreasonable.
